Several insiders tell Radar magazine Britney Spears’ announcement that she’s divorcing Kevin Federline was a timed gift to her favorite celebrity weekly People magazine, which scrapped their cover story on Kirstie Alley’s weight loss when the news broke. People goes to print a day later than their competitors. “She’s not stupid,” an insider says of Spears. “Her timing is perfect. No one can change anything now except for People, who she’s in bed with.” Seconded another celebrity press source, “Britney definitely knows People will give her a soft pillow to land on.”
